Fellowships, Internships, and Work Study

Learn from and collaborate with the Montshire staff through fellowship, internship, and work study opportunities

Donley Fellowships

Donley Fellows are critical science communicators who leverage the Montshire Museum of Science’s resources to engage the public in science, foster critical thinking skills, and spark an interest in STEM. In addition to interacting with visitors as on-the-floor Explainers, Donley Fellows will engage in evidence-based examinations of challenges facing the science communication and museum fields. They will examine how these challenges affect our local community, and propose solutions for how we might address these challenges as a museum. This scholarship will be guided by Education, Evaluation and DEAI staff members. This is a paid fellowship opportunity.

Montshire interns work closely with Montshire staff while developing a project that will have a significant impact on the Museum. Interns receive an orientation to museum operations from our staff and also participate in a seminar on museum philosophy, governance, and practices. Interns may also have opportunities to participate in staff meetings and to meet individually with senior staff.

Work Study

Montshire offers work study support to financially eligible students who want to gain experience in their major while helping to offset their educational expenses. Work study opportunities include serving as exhibit Explainers or assisting with education, membership, visitor services, and buildings and grounds.
